Monroe, Perry Counties Included On Endangered Landmarks List

Last updated on Tuesday, May 5, 2009

(UNDATED) - The Historic Landmark Foundation of Indiana is announcing its list of the ten most endangered sites in the state.

This year's list includes the Indiana Soldiers' and Sailors' Children's Home in Knightstown and Bush Stadium in Indianapolis.

Structures in Peru, Rome, Lowell, Bloomington, Syracuse, Evansville and Franklin County are also listed. The foundation's list is available online at www.historiclandmarks.org.

In Monroe County, the list includes the Maple Grove Road Rural Historic District which they say is threatened by urban sprawl.

In Perry County they say the old county courthouse in Rome is threatened by simple neglect and lack of funding.
